French Meadow bakery looks so inviting as you drive by, that everyone should stop in at least once. When you get inside, you'll find that the visual appeal of F.M. is carried over from their huge sign & tables outside to the charm inside.
Though the place is so aesthetically eyepopping, unfortunately the pastries are good, but not great. A little typical in their selection and taste, not outstanding, and like most high-end bakeries, typically high priced.
Their lunch menu is diverse, however, with great sandwiches and wraps.
The parking can be a pain, just due to location. But if you're looking for somewhere to hang out, look cool while reading a book, and not interested in being too culinarily challenged, F.M. is a good spot.
